Today, Slow Food and ARC2020 – a platform of over 150 EU civil society networks and organizations – will present the European Parliament with requests for a Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) that supports family farms, reinvests public money into public goods and rejects food speculation.
At the conference, President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, will be joined by Dacian Cioloş, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development; Carlo Petrini, President of Slow Food International; and representatives of other key European civil society organizations who are involved in the CAP reform debate.
Participants of the Good Food March – farmers, citizens, young people and 100 organizations from 19 countries who journeyed from Munich to Brussels – will also be taking part in the conference, and will have an opportunity to pose their questions to their MEPs.
